This is a rather odd album. The fairly plain jacket doesn't really hint at the strangeness within.
Urszula Bogumiła Dudziak-Urbaniak
is (according to wiki) a leading Polish jazz vocalist
The backing tracks here are really good, if you're into that jazz-fusion stuff (I'm mostly indifferent to it unless it's got a lot of funk mixed in). On top of it, however - well, let's just say that Yoko Ono has a lot for which to answer, and not all of it is as good as the B-52s.
In certain moods I kind of like this, but you just can't depend on those moods.

Call me Monday
: In 2007, Dudziak's classic 1970s song "Papaya" saw a resurgence in popularity in the Philippines where it was regularly featured in a local noontime TV game show Pilipinas, Game KNB?. A favorite track for Filipino drag queens as lip-synch
material in the '70s gay disco/bar scene, the song then saw a revival when a TV host danced to the tune, helping to spread the popularity of the song to Latin America and the US. The dance has then been featured in several news programs, including MSNBC
On 21 March 2008, the dance was featured on ABC's Good Morning America
, where the hosts also danced to the song.
